SSIS - XML Source to SQL Server Destination. How to handle new tags in xml file?

Hi, I've created a SSIS package, which reads my XML file using XML Source, using SCD(Slowly Changing Dimension) to identify whether to do an Insert/Update and everything's fine so far. But there are chances that my xml file will have new tags added apart from what are already there. So In that case, i'm not able to figure out whether to alter the table to add new column or something like that. Need your suggestion. Thanks in advance Vijay

SSIS - load table from source text file with multiple record lengths


I have a text file that has mulitple records lengths that I need to load into a table.  The file has multiple record types and each record type detemines the length of the record.  Let me try to explain...the file has a balance line 1, multiple detail records, balance line 2, and a trailer record.

The first record is a balance line 1, which has a record length of 144.

Detail records with a record type of inv or crd, will have a record length of 147.  The remaining record types will have a length of 144.

The second to the last record is balance line 2, which has a a record length of 156.

And the trailer record, which has a record length of 162.

Here is a portion of my source file.  I have made each line bold where you can see the rec type.  The record starting with 9999 is the trailer.

Problem in Date Format While Exporting To Excel Destination From Flat File Source In SSIS



I have a flat file(.csv) which contains data(strings incuding date in yyyy-mm-dd format).This i am using in Flat File Source and want to export those data to an Excel Destination.Before exporting to Excel Destination i have created a Derived Column component where i am using an express to get day,month,year part and creating a date sting in dd/mm/yyyy format then conveting it to DT_DATE datatype and then exporting to Excel Component.But while exporting to Excel this date format is getting changed to mm/dd/yyyy format.

The expression i used in derived column is

(DT_DATE)(SUBSTRING(date,9,2) + "/" + SUBSTRING(date,6,2) + "/" + SUBSTRING(date,1,4))

where date is a column from Flat File Source.

Even I changed the Locale to English(United Kingdom) in Flat File Connection Manager for the above .csv file.But still it didnt work.

I searched a lot in google and failed to get any solution on this.

Can anyone help me in solving this issue ?

Import XML File to SQL Table

Here is a brief example of importing an XML file into SQL Server table. This is accomplished by using the BULK option of OPENROWSET to load the file, and then utilizing the XQuery capabilities of SQL Server to parse the XML to normalized table format. This example requires SQL server 2005 or SQL Server 2008.

First, the following XML is saved to XML file C:\Products.xml.

Word save file on SharePoint via mapped drive


Hi, I have a Document Library mapped to a drive letter. I am able to browse the drive through Windows Explorer. However when I try to save a document to the drive Word returns, 'Unable to connect to the Web server.' .  I have been unable to find any information regarding this error message. If I try to create a document in the Document Library through Windows Explorer and the mapped drive, I get a different error message: 'Unable to create the file 'New Microsoft Office Word Document.docx' There is no user session key for the specified logon session.' After I click OKand refresh the directory, a 0 KB New Microsoft Word Document.docx file has been created. When that file is opened, it is in Read-Only mode.

Issue: Load {NUL} from flat file to "Flat File Source" faild.

Hi guys, I've met a strange issue when I was working to use SSIS to load data from flat file to database. It is a story about {NUL}. Sample Flat File: FIELD_SAMPLE|OTHERS ABC{NUL}DEFG|Any Others   I placed an Flat File Source to load these into package, and the configuration of the Connection Manager are as following: FIELD_SAMPLE: Unicode string [DT_WSTR], Length 8   Then I click the "Preview" button and I can see this data in the "Preview" window correctly (with the value "ABC{NUL}DEFG"). But when I tried to run this package, I've got an error that the "ABC{NUL}DEFG" is too long for this field. Then I changed the length to 20 and it was loaded into SSIS package. But I found the value in SSIS package is "ABC", and "{NUL}DEFG" was not there~ I have no ideal why it is ok in Preview but it is not ok when the package running~     Anyway, I hope to load the {NUL} from the flat file into target database. So that is there anybody could give me a hand?

Load and parse a file where the file path is located in a column of a flat file source

Hi, I have a situation where I have a CSV that contains a bunch of data that populates a bunch of related tables with FK constraints directly.  Thats no problem.  The problem is that one of the columns specifies a filepath to an XML file that is supposed to contain data to be populated in a table with an FK constraint.  How do I specify the file name to the XML source component at runtime? For example TableA has columns: TableAID GroupName TableB has columns TableBID TableAID (FK to Table A) MemberID (the data in question) TableA has a 1 to many relationship with Table B. The CSV has a bunch of columns including: TableAID File path to list of members for each group. I don't know how to solve this problem.  I tried using a ForEach ... but I couldn't get it to work. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Adaptive Flat File Destination Columns

I'm sure it must possible to adjust the columns for a flat file output based on the input, but so far have not found the right tools. I have to convert quite a few tables to flat files, where the input columns have not been safely specified yet. The tables are still being changed.   e.g. I have a table with columns A,B,C. Columns D,E,F... could be added later, maybe B or C will even be removed or renamed. I have to transfer all data from the table except for column A to a flat file.   I find it annoying having to adjust the columns manually every time. Would be extreemly thankful for your advice.

Konesans Trace File Source adapter


Found the handy Konesans Trace File Source adapter that allows reading of SQL Profiler trace (.trc) files, and it works well. The adapter has properties that allow for Variable-based filename property interpretation...however being a total SSIS noob, I am not familiar how to set up the variables so that it will read from a series of files in a directory. The method I am familiar with, of using a ForEach container doesnt really work because the adapter itself does not rely on a connection manager, and I am unable to set the variable name for it via an expression.

Anyone out there using this tool or have some pointers?
